MATERIAL FOR PRODUCTIVITY IN THE 21ST CENTURY

The following materials presented are in place to expose the hidden timbres within our contemporary tools for communication, specifically the smart phone. There are myths surrounding the notion of our electronic objects having an inner voice, a soul. If there is an inner voice, a soul what is it saying and who is it speaking to? These materials along with an observation station, invite us to listen closely to what churns deep inside. They seek to enable a deeper connection, a space for more affection to ensue -- that these objects are more than just objects. But uniquely organic devices capable of providing more than utilitarian and functional purposes. Objects full of life and a super-sensible chaotic presence. Ultimately, these materials place more wieght on the everyday actions we perform with these devices. What you will hear is as much a challenge as it is an invitation, a window, an opportunity to transcend our perception of meaninless noise into something meaningful.
